Amateur photographer for the Creative Commons
Introduction
Now retired through ill health, I have worked as a computer programmer, writer, psychotherapist, and more. I carry at least one camera everywhere I go and contribute to society by making most of my photos available on the Creative Commons. Hundreds of websites and blogs have used my photos and you can find dozens of them on Wikipedia.

You can see the best of my photos on Google+ and on 500px. If you also want to see the not-so-good ones, see my Flickr feed. I'm also a fairly active member of the Photography on the Net and Talk Photography forums. I have fun with my phone's camera and post the results to Instagram and Streamzoo, where my user name is garryknight.

I also enjoy creating electronic digital music (EDM) and publish my tunes here, on Soundcloud, YouTube, Vimeo, etc.

If you're interested in all things Android, iPhone, iPad, tablet computing, and mobile computing, you should follow me on Twitter. For everything else, add me to a Circle on Google+.

Another very skilled young woman with Asperger's.

(Video runs 10'27")
Alix Generous is a young woman with a million and one ideas — she's done award-winning science, helped develop new technology and tells a darn good joke (you'll see). She has Asperger's, a form of autistic spectrum disorder that can impair the basic social skills required for communication, and she's worked hard for years to learn how to share her thoughts with the world. In this funny, personal talk, she shares her story — and her vision for too...

Come on Cameron, what are you waiting for? Afraid that they might get jobs and cause an upturn in the economy?
 
Government says it is looking at offers and will consider accepting more refugees after initially saying it would only take 50.

I personally think this is the greatest thing since sliced bread, but if you’re used to scrolling up and down with your cursor wherever you want, you can turn this setting off.

Remove your full-stop key? Oh, sorry, you didn't mean that. Install Ubuntu? Get a Mac? Go Android-only? Run it in a VM under Linux so you can kill it and restart it quickly? Or, just get a lot of pleasure from killing it...

Around 48,000 people have signed so far. Let's more than double that.
 
There is a global refugee crisis. The UK is not offering proportional asylum in comparison with European counterparts. We can't allow refugees who have risked their lives to escape horrendous conflict and violence to be left living in dire, unsafe and inhumane conditions in Europe. We must help.

If you're wondering why the Google logo went all Toytown, here's a load of meaningless waffle from the Beeb:
Google has altered its typeface. Cue much discussion about what subtle message the company is trying to convey.

"British Prime Minister David Cameron has reassured his anxious public that the total number won’t rise above 1,000."

I hope that was written with tongue firmly in cheek. Ever since the Tory government came into power many of us seem to be using the word "shame" more and more. But that's how we feel. Ashamed to be living in a country led by people who know no shame and who create ever more shameful situations.

Shame on you, Cameron!
Just 216 Syrians have been accepted under the U.K.'s resettlement program.

If a customer orders eggs on white toast and you're out of white bread you should let them know, not just serve them brown toast. Give them a chance to change their order. This isn't the first time this kind of thing has happened.
